A trailer for the new game will be released on the site Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Rockstar Games has officially announced the next segment of its GTA series: "Grand Theft Auto V."

Rockstar Games' website doesn't offer any details, such as release date, platforms, or which Rockstar Games studio will make the game. It simply shows the new logo.

However, a trailer for the new game will be released on the site Wednesday, November 2, 2011.

According to VG247, "Grand Theft Auto V's" location is to be set in Hollywood, and a 2012 release seems likely. More specifically, a holiday 2012 release may be in the works. VG247 also predicts that the game will be made in the Rockstar North studio in Edinburgh.

"Grand Theft Auto," which is a game that allows players to take on the role of individuals rising in the ranks of organized crime by completing different missions such as motor vehicle theft, was originally released in October 1997. "Grand Theft Auto 2" launched in 1999, "Grand Theft Auto lll" was released in 2001, and "Grand Theft Auto lV" launched in 2008. In between many of these releases were others, such as "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" and "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas."

I know someone who plays GTA... its like a drug! For me on the other hand... i'd like some arcade style games like Mortal-Kombat, King Of Fighters and Art of Fighting etc.

Other than that, nothing comes close to gaming on a PC.

All those who say Xbox, PS is better, i could bet most haven't even tried playing some modern PC game like original Crysis, Metro 2033 etc on a reasonably new PC... Even GRAW was fun on PC.

Only thing that sometimes is a buzz-kill is some racing simulations. You need a steering wheel for those ultra-real simulators and keyboards don't cut it, but if money's no object you could score one.

I would never play racing or platform games on my PC with a mouse and keyboard anyway. MS makes an XBOX controller for the PC and Logitech has their steering wheels that work for both PS3 and PC. I got the wheel for GT5 and Dirt 3.

Haven't really touched my PS3 in a while, and now that Battlefield 3 is out and COD: MW3 is due soon, I probably won't even touch the PS3 in the near future.

Well, original Crysis is available on PS3 and X360 nowadays. It is re-done in new Crytech engine, though... but still looks darn fine. Some of GRAWs are available as well.

I'm not saying that consoles are better - I do game on PC and PS3, after all. But short of RTS games, it is nowadays bigger chance that you will miss game on PC than on console. Consoles end up with more exclusives (or multiplat but consoles-only games). It is a fact of life.

Exclusives are mostly action games, often third person.

In addition to missing most RTS, you'd miss TBS and a lot of RPG's by sticking to a console.
